Zita West FAQ's:           
 
Zita West Vitafem:

Do I need to take extra Folic Acid if I am taking Vitafem?
No, not unless your doctor specifically recommends it. New Vitafem delivers 400ug of Folic Acid daily, which is widely believed to be the optimal amount for supplementation.

Is there a risk of taking too much Folic Acid?
Vitafem contains 400 ug of Folic Acid, which is well within what is considered safe as a level for daily supplementation.

I've noticed my urine has turned yellow since taking Vitafem. Is this normal?
Yes, the high levels of B vitamins in Vitafem can cause some people's urine to turn yellow. If this happens to you, don't worry, it's perfectly natural!

Can I carry on taking Vitafem if I am pregnant?
Yes, however, it is better to move on to to the Vital Essence range which has been especially formulated for your body's changing needs during each trimester of pregnancy.  
 
Zita West Vitamen:

Will Vitamen improve my partner's sperm count?
Research has shown that vitamins and minerals used in Vitamen help with sperm health. Sperm health includes mobility, motility, formation, and sperm count.

Should my partner be doing anything else to improve the health of his sperm?
There are a lot of lifestyle changes that can be made productively. See the Zita West Website.  
 
Zita West Vital Essence 1:

My GP says if I am eating a good diet, I do not need to take vitamins?
In our experience, even if you have a healthy diet - which many people don't these days, given missed, hurried or convenience meals - growing numbers of mothers-to-be want the added reassurance of knowing they are getting all the most important vitamins and minerals they need. Not least because intensive food production and processing has stripped many foods of a lot of their nourishment. In our opinion, a good multi vitamin and mineral supplement is essential during pregnancy, if only as an insurance policy.  
 
Zita West Vital Essence 2:

My GP says if I am eating a good diet, I do not need to take vitamins?
In our view, even if you have a healthy diet - which many people don't these days, with missed, hurried and convenience meals - you may not be be sure you are getting the vitamins and minerals you need. Not least because intensive food production has stripped many foods of a lot of their nourishment. In our opinion, a good multi-vitamin and mineral supplement is extremely valuable during pregnancy, if only as an insurance policy.

What is the difference between Vital Essence 1 and 2?
Certain vitamins and minerals have been increased to meet the changing demands of mother and baby during the second trimester.  
 
Zita West Vital Essence 3:

Do the ingredients in Vital Essence 3 contain the RDA?
Yes, they have been approved by the HFMA and are formulated in conjunction with Department of Health guidelines.

My GP says if I am eating a good diet, I do not need to take vitamins?
In our view, even if you have a healthy diet - which many people don't these days, given missed, hurried or convenience meals - you can't always be sure you are getting the vitamins and minerals you need. Not least because intensive food production and processing have stripped many foods of a lot of their nourishment. In our opinion, a good multi-vitamin and mineral supplement is valuable during pregnancy, if only as an insurance policy.

My appetite has gone off, I don't want to eat as much. May I take Vital Essence 3 instead of food?
No, you must maintain a good diet, especially one rich in carbohydrates, during the end of pregnancy. Carbohydrates will give you fuel for labour.
 
 
Zita West Revital Essence:

How does Revital Essence differ from any other product on the market?
ReVital Essence is an unique formulation comprising the specific mix of vitamins and minerals you will need to help with the many challenges and changes your body will experience immediately after the birth of your baby.

I am not finding time to prepare meals properly or eat properly; can Revital Essence help me?
Revital Essence is not a substitute for food, but it will give help to safeguard your intake of important vitamins and minerals.

Can I take Revital Essence if I am breast-feeding?
Yes, Revital Essence is excellent for when you are breast-feeding as the micro-nutrients you gain from your own diet can be passed on to your baby via your breast-milk.  
 
General:

What is "RDA" and why are so many of the ingredients in Zita West products higher than 100%?
"RDA" is an abbreviation of "Recommended Daily Allowance." The RDA was devised by the Dept of Health in the UK in 1979 to provide guidance on the intake of a limited number of specific vitamins and minerals that an average adult should have daily in order to avoid a deficiency that may lead to disease or general ill-health. Whereas this was, and remains, a useful benchmark for judging the contribution that any supplement may make to reaching those minimum requirements, it wasn't intended to represent an indication of optimum intake. You will probably have noticed that many supplements, particularly premium priced ones such as our own, contain daily levels that are frequently many times higher than the RDA, sometimes substantially so. This is because the vitamins and minerals concerned have been set at therapeutic levels in an attempt to boost the body's store of the nutrients concerned, often for a particular and limited period of time, the need for which can of course vary depending on factors such as general health, age etc. It is universally recognised, for example, that pregnancy and the early months following the birth, benefit from special attention to nutrition. All of the formulations within the Zita West range are well within the Government's guidelines for what represents the upper safe limit (USL) for long term daily supplementation of any given nutrient.
